    nice cars - any mods? Showroom floor performance is boring. Change stuff - make it yours.

    I'm going to sound like a grouch saying this... but I did not buy my car as a novelty to other drivers on the road. I bought my car for me to enjoy at my own pace. Believe me, I flog the **** out of my car... But I really... really... REALLY hate when everybody constantly wants me to do a burn out, powerslide the car, or "take off" and double the speed limit. Every owner I've spoken with about this feels the same way... Just because some clown wants them to flog their car and they don't doesn't mean they never have fun in their car. Like I said, I bought the car for me to have fun, not for other people to have fun with it. And notice how you said you kept trying to bug him. That's exactly what it is.

    But on another note, glad you enjoy my C6Z! I love this thing to death... Redline comes up real fast!

    Nothing wrong - just boring. This is a mod happy community. Posting anything stock is a bit off. Granted, they are nice sports cars - but they're no differint than the car sitting on the dealers lot, or being reviewed in the magazine.

    Personalization and customization are what take a vehicle and suit it to the owners own tastes. But if you like yours stock, I can appreciate that too. I have a coworker with a near identical blue z-06, and he loves the hell out of it. I keep pushing him towards a twin turbo kit, and he keeps saying it's fine just the way it is.

    A twin turbo kit is a good way to turn the engine into a ticking bomb. The pistons are hypereutectic, and despite what people are claiming, they're not going to last under boost. Hence why I am going to drop in a G7X5 cam with a new valve train, and be happy with 600whp. Eventually, forged 9:1 pistons and a P1SC will find their way in there too.

    If you can spend the money on the car, and you can spend the money on the turbokit, I would think it makes sense to spend money on internals.

    Speaking from experience, the first car I turbocharged had stock internals, they chose to exit the block after about 6 weeks via 3 holes.

    Still - to be reasonable, exhaust, headers, port and polish of the intake manifold, perhaps a more aggressive cam and some tuning - you could give the car a nice bump and still feel like you were on the safe side of things.
